Reply To: Family Involvement


Sometimes how involved a client wants their family to be fluctuates based on their symptoms and can even be an early warning sign of a relapse. Some clients are more suspicious or paranoid as they get unwell, and are only happy to have their families involved when their symptoms are less intense. And as Miriam and Shannon said, even if a client is feeling paranoid about family involvement, confidentiality does not prevent families from sharing information with us – just the other way around.
